Quintessential Diner Experience

Reasonable prices, good food, friendly staff, diner style. Waitress was very friendly and joked with members of our group. Small parking lot, but additional parking available along the street.

Amazing diner with great food! Does not disappoint. Military friendly. The prices are fair, and compare to waffle house.

We were on our way to Mystic And wanted to stop for breakfast. Looked for a dinner nearby and found Norms, we sat right away with no waiting which was great because we were traveling with a small child. We were waited quickly and the food was fast and hot and very good. Well worth the money and we would... More

Yes; a real old fashioned diner in the best sense. Good food, generous portions, friendly service. My minestrone and my wife's cheeseburger were both excellent and very fairly priced.

True classic American diner, with the good old greasy diner food. Great breakfast selection. A little cramped but adds to the atmosphere of it all. Exactly what you expect from the moment you see it. Worth a stop by.

We stopped for breakfast on the way to Westerly, RI, partly due to the other reviews and partly due to the easy access from I-95.(Getting back on going east is another story altogether.) The place was not crowded and seemed to have more locals than "tourists" like us. The breakfast menu (available online) includes typical diner fare and has choice... More

A real old time local diner feel. You can see why the locals like it. Everything was good from Milkshakes ( which are huge!) to breakfasts to Hamburgers and Onion Rings.

This is what you expect when going to a diner in a small town. Good wholesome food and friendly staff. The biscuits and graveyard were outstanding.

What's there not to like about Norm's? It's an old fashion, greasy spoon watering hole that is filled with charm and spirit. I'm from New Jersey and I consider myself to be a diner expert. This joint has earned a place in my heart. There's only six booths, as the counter takes up the majority of the place. We sat... More
